    Default wierd

    I bought Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Gold for my sons at Xmas. They played it of a few months w/ no problems. Then all of the sudden BSOD! The more they played the more it happened. I uninstalled it the reinstalled it and that was only a very temporary fix. Now it only boots up, but if you try to play your saved game, BSOD! This is the only time I have ever seen this screen. If it's the game, the fix can be super easy by not playing it! I'm no computer jockey so talk in a language a I can understand please.

    Thanks RCT3

    First thing you need to do is to go to the game's website and see if there are any patches for the thing. It is not uncommon that a game is released before it is really ready and they have to patch up problems after it is already in the retail segment.

    A few questions for you: Is the problem just with that game? Is Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 the only game you have tried to play on the machine? Are you certain that you have no viruses?

    I have run numerous games on this machine with no problems. No known viruses ( I try to keep it in check). This is the only game/program that has ever has this effect. I've never seen it or known what it was until this game came along.
